The Empty Man

The Empty Man ★★★★

The first hour is so freakin confident and enthralling that I forgave some of the meandering in the middle. Jimmy Badge Dale vs. a less whimsical Babadook, told without cheap jumps or frenzied edits. A perfect 20 minute ghost story opening that practically functions as its own short film. What's not to love!!!! Wish I'd seen it in a theater!!!
